When looking for new furniture, you may find that the best deals are literally right before your eyes. Most furniture stores sell their display furniture at incredible prices- and being at the right place at the right time could mean slashing as much as 90% off the costs of your furniture. Display models are usually set up for customers to see, touch, and feel the furniture choices before them. These pieces can include furniture for the entire home, including sofas, beds, dressers, kitchen tables, and more. Often companies use displays for a few weeks to a few months, then sell it at reduced costs to make way for the new displays, passing on tremendous savings your way.

Keep in mind that because this furniture has already been put together and sit out, there may be small scratches, dents, or other slight damage, however, for those who don’t mind barely noticeable marks, the deals are undeniable. The damage, if any, is very minimal, and most of the time not something even seen without a search. A few dents and dings for hundreds to thousands of extra dollars…priceless.

In order to find out if a display model is for sale, or when it will become available for sale, all you need to do is ask a furniture sales associate. They will be glad to give this information, which will also give you a heads up as to when to be back to the store when it is being sold.

Think about whether you could pay for someone to fix or clean any problems with the display furniture. The best deals will be on furniture that has some kind of damage, but if you are receiving a significant discount, then you may find it will be worth your while to go
